display caseEach month, the glass display case (located by the stairs on the second floor of the library) gets a makeover. Library and college staff members, as well as generous community members, have created stunning displays over such diverse subjects as Star Wars memorabilia, antique dolls, hand-painted porcelain, Renaissance weaponry, and artifacts from India. There are still a few days to stop by and see this month’s display, which features cameras and other photography paraphernalia through the decades.

We are currently looking for unique collections to fill the display case during the summer and fall months. If you would be interested in displaying a collection of items or have any questions, please contact the library at 832-559-4211.

Have you ever traveled to Colombia, Peru, or Mexico?

During this month, we are featuring a display of items from Colombia, Peru, and Mexico in our display case.  All of the items that are being displayed were collected by our Children's Librarian during her trips to the area.  Come by and looks at the exciting hats that are worn by the people of that area. In the display are miniature houses, pottery, and other items of interest.  There are also several books in the library that also provide additional information on the South American Countries.  If you have a question about the area, we may be able to provide an answer to you.
